The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons 

Isaiah 55:6-13

6 Seek ye the LORD while He may be found,
call ye upon Him while He is near.
7 Let the wicked forsake his way
and the unrighteous man his thoughts;
and let him return unto the LORD,
and He will have mercy upon him,
and to our God,
for He will abundantly pardon.

8 "For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways My ways," saith the LORD.
9 "For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.
10 For as the rain cometh down and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth,
and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
11 so shall My word be that goeth forth out of My mouth: It shall not return unto Me void,
but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

12 "For ye shall go out with joy,
and be led forth with peace;
the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing,
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree,
and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree;
and it shall be to the LORD for a name,
for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off."

Psalm 34

1 I will bless the LORD at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
2 My soul shall make her boast in the LORD;
the humble shall hear thereof and be glad.
3 O magnify the LORD with me,
and let us exalt His name together.

4 I sought the LORD, and He heard me,
and delivered me from all my fears.
5 They looked unto Him and were lightened,
and their faces were not ashamed.
6 This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him,
and saved him out of all his troubles.
7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear Him,
and delivereth them.

8 O taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man that trusteth in Him!
9 O fear the LORD, ye His saints!
For them that fear Him suffer no want.
10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger,
but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.

11 Come, ye children, hearken unto me;
I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
12 What man is he that desireth life,
and loveth many days, that he may see good?
13 Keep thy tongue from evil,
and thy lips from speaking guile.
14 Depart from evil and do good;
seek peace and pursue it.

15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous,
and His ears are open unto their cry.
16 The face of the LORD is against them that do evil,
to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth.
17 The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth,
and delivereth them out of all their troubles.
18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart,
and saveth such as are of a contrite spirit.

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
20 He keepeth all his bones;
not one of them is broken.
21 Evil shall slay the wicked,
and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.
22 The LORD redeemeth the soul of His servants,
and none of them that trust in Him shall be desolate.

Words of Worship - Matthew 4:4b

Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Matthew 6:7-15

7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions as the heathen do, for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. 8 Be not ye therefore like unto them, for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of before ye ask Him. 9 In this manner therefore pray ye:

Our Father who art in Heaven,
hallowed be Thy name.
10 Thy Kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the Kingdom, and the power and the glory for ever.
Amen.

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.


Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 4:11-12

Again, if two lie down together, then they have heat, 
but how can one be warm alone? 
And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; 
and a three-strand cord is not quickly broken. 

Jesus Speaks Morals & Values - Matthew 13:45-46

"Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it.
